Ingredients

Nuoc Cham Marinade
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup hot water
2 cups fish sauce or soy sauce
1 cup rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons pureed garlic
Banh Mi Burgers
1 pound fresh ground pork
1 pound fresh ground beef (grass-fed if available)
1/2 of the Nuoc Cham marinade
Green Chile Mayo
1 cup mayo
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons fish sauce or soy sauce
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 jalapeño pepper, roasted, peeled and minced (optional)
Pickled Slaw
1/2 of the Nuoc Cham marinade
1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
1/2 cup thinly sliced daikon Asian radish or regular radish
1/2 cup sliced cucumber
-
4 French bread buns, burger size
Green leaf lettuce

Preparation

Prepare the marinade: In a mixing bowl, whisk the sugar and hot water until dissolved. Add the fish or soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and TABASCO® Original Red Sauce and mix well. Divide the marinade; reserve one half for marinating and basting the burgers and the other half for preparing the pickled slaw.

Prepare the burgers: In a medium mixing bowl, combine the pork and beef. Do not over mix as this will cause the proteins to become sticky. Portion into four 8-ounce burger patties, cover with half the marinade reserved for the burgers and refrigerate for 1 hour or until ready to use. (Reserve other half of marinade for basting burgers while cooking.)

Prepare the mayo: Combine the mayo, sugar, fish or soy sauce, lime juice, curry powder, chopped jalapeños, and TABASCO® Green Sauce and whisk until smooth. Set aside and chill.

Prepare the pickled slaw: Pour the portion of marinade reserved for the slaw over the carrot, daikon, and cucumber. Set aside and chill.

Preheat grill to medium to medium-high heat and cook to desired doneness. During the grilling process, baste the patties in the remaining marinade to form a flavorful glaze on the outside of the patties.

To serve, assemble burgers on buns and top each burger with 1 tablespoon mayo, a layer of pickled slaw, some lettuce and the top bun.
